Collection Description

Biographical Note

Frank Daniel (William Frank) (1900-1981) was a noted journalist for the Atlanta Journal. During a forty-year career he served the paper in a variety of capacities including opera critic, theater editor, book editor, editorial page columnist and general assignment editor. Daniel was born 7 September 1900 in Thomaston, Georgia. In 1922 he graduated from the University of Georgia and spent the next year studying at the Columbia University School of Journalism. On 19 November 1923, Frank Daniel began his journalistic career with the Atlanta Journal. In August 1924 he took a leave to travel to Europe.

Returning in January 1925, Daniel soon obtained his "big break" when two reporters sent by the Atlanta Journal to cover the opening of the Metropolitan Opera were unable to complete their assigned interview with one of the lead singers. City Editor Harllee Branch, Sr. knew of Frank Daniel's great love of opera whenever he was able. During his career Frank Daniel was also a friend to many literary, theatrical and musical figures including Erskine Caldwell, Caroline Miller, Geraldine Farrar, Friedelind Wagner, and Vergil Thomson.

Frank Daniel died 2 September 1981.
